Nigerians from all walks of life have reacted differently to President Muhammadu Buhari's victory in the Saturday, February 23 presidential election.
While some celebrate the president's emergence others expressed displeasure over his re-election bid, which will last for another four years.
Legit.ng gathers that one of President Buhari's supporters took to social media to shed tears of joy over the president's victory in the election.
In the video that was shared by the spokesperson for the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo (SAN), the lady congratulated Buhari and thanked God for the president's re-election while her tears flowed freely.
See tweet below:
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presented the certificate of return to President Muhammadu Buhari and his running mate, Yemi Osinbajo, following the victory of the APC in the February 23 presidential election.
Speaking before jubilant supporters during the certificate presentation at the International conference centre in Abuja on Wednesday, February 27, the president thanked Nigerians for their unwavering support.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that in a new video that surfaced on the social media page of an Instagram user identified as Ije-Luv, a young woman was spotted reacting in an unusual manner to the news of President Buhari’s victory.
The Nigerian lady had filmed herself weeping and lamenting severely to the heavens for making the incumbent emerge as winner in the presidential election.
She repeatedly mouthed the same question in between fits of heavy sobbing. She said: "God, why Buhari? Why did you give us Buhari again? God, we don’t want Buhari."
The lady in her video failed to mention her most preferred candidate that she was hoping would emerge as president at the recently concluded presidential poll.
In another previous report by Legit.ng, the United Kingdom congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on securing a second term as president.
A statement from the British High Commission in Abuja on Wednesday, quoted the minister of state for Africa, Harriett Baldwin, as saying “I offer my congratulations to President Buhari on securing a second term as the Nigerian President.
“The UK is a long-standing friend and partner of Nigeria and the Nigerian people and a stable and prosperous Nigeria benefits Africa and the world.”
